About this book

RHS Practical Latin for Gardeners is a unique guide to plant binomials based on the bestselling RHS Latin for Gardeners. It contains 1,500 of the most useful and most widespread Latin names, organized into thematic chapters including Colour, Size, Form and Habitat. Each chapter is further subdivided into smaller groups, such as large plants and small plants. This allows gardeners to make new connections and discoveries in a way standard alphabetical lists don't permit. 'Behind the Name' feature boxes further increase the book's practical value, and a wide range of botanical watercolours ensure that it is beautiful as well as functional. RHS Practical Latin for Gardeners includes a definition and pronunciation guide for each word, as well as a 16-page alphabetical index, so that it can still be used as a conventional dictionary of Latin names. And its handy, pocket-sized format makes it the perfect gift.

Media reviews

Praise for the first edition:

"This book is a superb way in for all those looking at how to design investigations and collect data to support their findings."
– Sue Townsend, Biodiversity Learning Manager, Field Studies Council

"[M]akes it easy for the reader to synthesise R and Excel and there is extra help and sample data available on the free companion webpage if needed. I recommended this text to the university library as well as to colleagues at my student workshops on R. Although I initially bought this book when I wanted to discover R I actually also learned new techniques for data manipulation and management in Excel"
– Mark Edwards, EcoBlogging

"A must for anyone getting to grips with data analysis using R and excel."
– Amazon 5-star review

"It has been very easy to follow and will be perfect for anyone."
– Amazon 5-star review

"A solid introduction to working with Excel and R. The writing is clear and informative, the book provides plenty of examples and figures so that each string of code in R or step in Excel is understood by the reader."
– Goodreads, 4-star review
